Foresight (26 x 30 min. | 09 x 30 min. HD)

For example, innovative medical procedures or new industrial materials, intelligent communication technology or revolutionary approaches to environmental conservation. But all this is only possible if researchers are independent and creative, and if they have the courage to break new scientific ground. But how much of the research being carried out into futuristic projects is “fiction”, and how much of it is “science”? What methods are employed? What are the positive and negative aspects of trying to anticipate the future?
